{Quote of the Week.}

Not everyone can feel things as deeply as you. Most people, their feelings are … bland, tasteless. They’ll never understand what it’s like to read a poem and feel almost like they’re flying, or to see a bleeding fish and feel grief that shatters their heart. It’s not a weakness, Grey. It’s what I love about you most.” ― Juliann GareyToo Bright to Hear Too Loud to See

birthday, european royals, everything royal, hamburg 2015

twenty + six.

Yesterday I turned 26.

I don’t know how time has flown so quickly. But here we are.

Last year, when I turned 25, I had a simple dinner with my parents and my dad bought me a royal magazine with Crown Prince Frederik and Princess Mary on the cover. He had heard about how I had been writing my royal blog during my job hunt.

And less than a year later from that day I received that magazine, well, 364 days to be exact, I met Crown Prince Frederik and Princess Mary at Hamburg City Hall, a few blocks from the office of my (not-so-new) job.

It was in that moment, standing in front of City Hall waiting for their arrival, that I decided life is all kinds of wild.

Because a lot can happen in 365 days.

I’m certainly excited to see what’s ahead for year 26.

To be alive

To be alive: not just the carcass
But the spark.
That’s crudely put, but…

If we’re not supposed to dance,
Why all this music?

-Gregory Orr

To be able to say: I loved this person, we had a hell of a nice time together, it’s over but in a way it will never be over and I do know that I for sure loved this person, to be able to say that and mean it, that’s rare, señor. That’s rare and valuable.Ernest Hemingway, from The Complete Short Stories
